Feeling that slump after the Bank Holiday?
You made it into work after the long weekend without turning back and pulling a sickie, you deserve a little treat, a pat on the back if you will.
One of the best ways to cheer yourself up is with some decadent food, right?
Here's seven sexy treats to sweeten you up this week:
1. Toffee Popcorn Bubble Tea - Chew Brew
A brand new and very trendy bubble tea room has just opened up on Aungier Street.
They've got all the traditional flavours (a shit tonne of matcha) and then some unique, drool-worthy mixtures for the adventurous palette.
Toffee popcorn flavour is our top pick this week.
2. Ice SCREAM - Gino's
Gino's is celebrating All Hallows Eve in the best possible way with these freaky looking ice cream creations.
This is a work of art, we'd almost feel bad asking for a scoop off it.
3. Chocolate And Rose Cocktail - MVP
Dublin 8's cosy boozer and home to the spudbox has been a hotspot with foodies as of late after their new collaboration with Grálinn.
The duo behind Fia, Two Pups and Tang have introduced a succulent Irish tapas menu that is being served in the pub from Thursday to Saturday. The menu takes a step away from conventional pub grub and introduces unique combinations and flavours such as hokkaido pumpkin with chestnut & miso, kaibroc with almond cream and fried green tomatoes.
To top it all off, they've also introduced some deadly cocktails, Choc n’ roses being our fave, made from El Jimador tequila, lime, rosewater, creme de cacao and bitters.
4. Truffle Oil Fries - The Wild Duck
The Lovin team headed down to The Wild Duck last week for a bit of team bonding and though we went for the pints, the food is what really impressed us.
The truffle fries are comfort in a box - oily, covered in sauce and the portion is huge.
The perfect food to much on while you're having a few rounds with friends.
5. Granola Bowl - Storyboard
Eating breakfast out is underrated. In fact, I'd go as far to say it's quickly becoming my favourite meal to eat out. It fills you up for the day, it's usually super healthy and it gives you time to enjoy the beginning of your day.
Storyboard is the perfect spot to try, it's got ample seating and a socket at nearly every single one.
Who said working remotely is stressful?
6. The Mulino - Mulino's
Mulino's in Raheny is a cute awl spot.
The Mulino pizza is a must during your visit.
7. Reese's Peanut Butter Porridge - The Grind Howth
Porridge doesn't have to be boring.
This winter warmer is loaded with the good stuff - Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, hazelnuts and dollops of gooey chocolate.
Feeling hungry yet?
